Buying a Piano

Practicing all you can, in between lessons, is essential and this is why having a piano at home is so important. However, before you invest in a piano, remember that not only are pianos expensive, but they also take up a lot of space. Good advice if you are considering children would be to search beginner piano lessons for kids to see whether the passion truly matches the investment of purchasing a piano for your home. A good tutor will also be able to guide on the type of appropriate piano, as well as where to shop for new and second-hand options.  

Why Piano Playing is Healthy

If you’re searching for a private piano instructor, you may be unaware of the myriad benefits associated with the piano that has nothing to do with the music itself! Of course, there is the sheer enjoyment of unleashing your creativity, but there are profound mental health benefits too. Imagine mastering 88 different keys, reading music, and operating pedals at the same time? All of this takes a huge amount of concentration and dexterity.    

It’s well known that playing the piano is beneficial in early childhood development, but even adults who take beginner piano lessons for kids will reap cognitive benefits. One of the main reasons for this is that playing an instrument fortifies neural fibres which connect both the left and right brain which aids in improving both problem-solving and memory

If you are considering a piano teacher for your child, remember that discipline and structure which are required for both practicing and learning will have a very positive impact on both social and behavioural development. This is when private lessons in a one on one and supporting tutoring environment can be extremely helpful in improving a student’s unique challenges.   

Beginner Piano Lessons for Kids: What to Expect

Beginning to learn a new instrument can be a huge task, not dissimilar to a second language, but with the right piano instructor, lessons for children can set foundations to build on, or return to, later in life. At the very least, in beginner’s lessons, you can expect to learn about rhythm, harmony, and melody.

Find a Private Piano Instructor and Refresh Your Ability   

If you were first introduced to the piano at a young age, only to discontinue lessons, but feel the urge to return to those roots now, taking lessons can quickly refresh your knowledge and take you to the next level of ability

If you have decided that playing the piano is a good method to relax and unwind, remember that there are many other benefits too. Here are some: 

  • The ability to focus and improved memory.
  • Confidence in improvising across different styles.
  • The knowledge to adapt across ranging tempos.
  • Honing your musical ear.
  • Developing emotional intelligence.
